My husband, teenage daughter and I just returned from 8 days at the Riu Montego Bay. While the resort it's self was nice the staff, food and beach were disappointing. I take reviews with a grain of salt but I wish I had listen to the bad reviews on this resort. This was our second trip to Jamaica. We thought... More

I stayed at the Riu this past week and have to say I'm disappointed. The food was horrible. I barely ate the whole trip. If it wasn't for the gift shop having potato chips I don't know what I would of done. The people are very friendly but constantly just want your money. Also my flip flops were taken and... More

Food This hotel has a great choice of food offering international and the national dishes of Jamaica. There's almost everything you could think of such as smoked salmon, even caviar and great varieties of salads and fresh vegetables for those not wanting the burgers and chips. Allow some time to survey the large selections, before filling your plate at the... More

The food was terrible. I basically did not eat the whole time I was there. A person in our party had 200.00 stolen from her bag in the room. It took a phone call every single day to fill our fridge with beer. Had a ball because of the group we had but other than that I would not go... More

NASTY,NASTY,NASTY!!!!!!!!!!! We stayed at the Riu for our Honeymoon trip and it was the worst place I could ever imagine. The food was just TERRIBLE. The best meal we had was driving off the resort to a local restaurant and that ended up being $60. The room service was a joke, we couldn't get any clean linens. I would have... More

My wife and 2 boys (11 & 14) spent 8 days here this July. Here are a few pros and cons of this resort. Pros: Staff are very friendly especially the entertainment staff. Rooms are clean and well kept, same for the common areas. Food was plentiful and there was never an issue with any of the food's quality. Excursions... More

I stayed here with my boyfriend and two friends. We had booked 4 months prior two double bed rooms that were next door to each other. We were informed the first night that we would be placed in two rooms with one bed and they weren't next door to each other, but we would have to wake up as early... More

It is truly a shame that I can't write a positive review as this was intended to be a momentous visit. Check in went well, all inclusive, good food, great location, nice beach... These were my first thoughts as I returned to my room in building 2 to relax. I had only check in a mere few hours, enough to... More

One or two hiccups, the mini bar in the rooms are only topped up every 2nd day, which is a bit of a problem if you both like the same tipple, and if they forget to supply you with something then its no use complaining because nothing happens until its your top up day. The bar staff will avoid you... More

This resort was okay. It has no bells and whistles and if you go in knowing that then you will have no problem. We found it to be very clean. The pools were nice. When we were there it was a mix of families and young adults whose main purpose is to drink till they pass out. Drinks were not... More
